  • This was such a joy to listen to. I’ve always wondered more about Mr. Lawrence after reading the name in Rocko back in the day, and I always thought by reading that name “….no one talks to this guy”. But he’s SUCH A NICE GUY! And I had no idea how much creative input he had in Rocko and then in Spongebob. As an animator just starting out and planning the big move out west, this was really inspirational to hear. So thanks, Tom!

    P.S. I have a personalized “Laughing Filburt” hanging up on my wall from Joe Murray. Some people have a Laughing Jesus….;D
